Very tasty! I prepared mine in the toaster oven first covering with foil, then uncovering to brown, as I would have on a grill. The green onion was a nice change from spicier things like jalapenos, although I did serve mine with a salsa roja/creme fraiche dip that kicked things up a bit. Thanks for sharing-
